Jonathan’s wide-ranging experience (spanning over 28 years) has given him the ability to explain investments in a simple yet logical fashion, making him a tremendous financial adviser.
Jonathan has always been passionate about providing comprehensive, meticulous financial planning advice, so when he established Beckworth in 2001 he ensured that Beckworth had the most robust and diligent processes and he made it his objective to employ the very best possible team – a team which helps with every aspect of investment management. With Beckworth’s tried and tested 14 years of experience in fund management and helping clients, this clearly demonstrates that his diligent approach is working.CloseNext
Jonathan was born in Exeter and is married to Jane (who is an Ophthalmic Optician) and they have two grown up children. When Jonathan is not out and about seeing clients you’ll find him “on the water” (well, mostly on Exmouth’s floating café) or on his motorbike “green laning” around East Devon.

Karen grew up and worked in Newbury, until relocating to Devon in 2015. Having been brought up in the Berkshire countryside and after lots of holidays in Devon, the fresh air of the moors and coast now feel like home. She and her husband and two Norfolk Terriers love spending time exploring and discovering new walks, beaches and pubs! Renovating their home has been a big project, but Karen can always manage to fit in watching the latest film or boxset. And of course having friends and family from “up country” come to visit is always a pleasure!
Jessica joined Beckworth in October 2015 as part of the administration team after working in the hospitality sector over the last seven years. She brings with her exceptional customer service skills and an enthusiastic attitude.
Jessica grew up in Nottinghamshire and moved to Devon at the age of 16 along with her close family. After spending three years on the Isles of Scilly, where she met her husband Liam, she decided to make Devon her home in October 2014. She loves spending time with family and friends - be it socialising at one of Devon’s fabulous pubs or restaurants, watching the rugby, heading off on a weekend away, or down on the beach during the summer. In the colder months she is more likely to be found curled up on the sofa with a good book sampling some home cooked food.CloseNextPrevious

She has worked for a range of local organisations managing digital projects. She now lives in Mid-Devon with her young family. She enjoys long runs and short walks. These both help justify the amount of home-made cake she consumes. She plays keyboards and sings in a covers band. Summer weekends find her camping in her VW campervan or gardening amongst her chickens. CloseNextPrevious
